Final Meeting for Eggs

Well, this is our final meeting for Eggs by Spinelli. By now, you all should have finished the book and know how David and Primrose's story ends. Look at the discussion questions below, and post your response in the comments section of the blog.

1. Primrose spends a great deal of time pretending. What are some examples of this, and why do you think she likes to pretend?

2. Respect, as well as disrespect, are central themes of this novel. What are some examples of each in the book?

3. Eggs is an odd title for a book. Why do you think that Jerry Spinelli entitled this book Eggs? If you were to give a title to the story of your life so far, what would it be?

4. Did you enjoy this book? Why or why not?

**Our next meeting will be held on December 4th at 7:45 am. We will be teleconferencing with Terry Middle School kids to discuss Eggs. We will also be confirming the next book we read as a club, so cast your vote on the poll to the right!

This book was not my favorite book, but it was ok. On a scale of 1-10 I would probably give it a 4. I thought the book has a couple of funny parts, but it was mainly a sad story about two children learning to deal with grief.

I got to the end of the book, and I thought that it changed a lot. It was intresting but I would not read it again, though.
